“Creators of PaperTab claim ultra-slim, flexible invention will change the face of personal computing forever”
A flexible, paper-thin tablet which looks and feels like a sheet of paper is being touted as a revolutionary advance in computing.
The PaperTab, a high-resolution plastic display PC prototype, was unveiled on Monday at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
A new concept device developed by Intel, Queen’s University from Canada and the British firm Plastic Logic, it caused a stir on the first day of the week-long conference with an interactive, 10.7in plastic display that its makers called revolutionary. The team behind the PaperTab said their goal was to emulate the feel of paper with a robust, lightweight product that could bend and be dropped on a desk.
“If the idea catches on, expect paper to never be the same again,” said the news site pocket-lint.com.
